Denver >Lechuga's Italian Restaurant
My gf and I recently stopped by this crazy joint on our way home from frisbee and we were pleasantly surprised by the great food, service and affordablility. If you haven't tried this place you should stop by and give it a go.
I think you will really like it. -Charlie
Great lunch. I went to lunch Recently with some friends and stepped in the place for the first time. I had the Stuffed meat Cannoli. It was amazing. It was a good portion and price. I would suggest this to anyone.
Gotta luv it!. We've been coming to Lechuga's since before it was Lechuga's and that's a long, long time. If you stick to the pizza or the cannoli you will never be disappointed. The crust actually has flavor - kind of yeasty/buttery. The sausage is homemade. Try a "little devil" - delish piece of sausage wrapped in a jalepeno and nestled in their great crust - dip it in their semi-sweet marinera and you'll be in heaven. On the down side - the atmosphere can only be described as neighborhood tacky (eat in the bar and you won't notice it so much because it's so dark) - the pastas are pretty pedestrian but then I told you it's about the pizza and cannoli.
Worth the Drive. I grew up in North Denver but live near Parker now. There are 3 places worth the drive in North Denver and Lechuga's is one of them. I love the Canolis; I can't get enough of em. I have to buy the canolis by the dozen because my in-laws always seem to find out I made the trip for canolis and they have to have one as well.
An Italian dive with tasty fare and a touch of style..
The dining area feels like a cafeteria, with old tables, bright lights and neon bear signs in the window. The dimly lit, cozy lounge area is a great spot to relax. Entrees include sausage or meatball canolis smothered with cheese and red sauce. Homemade pastas include lasagna, manicotti, ravioli and spaghetti. Well-priced pizzas cme in giant squares or mini rounds. Get them with green chili strips, Italian sausage or just plain old cheese.
"neighborhood". graham310 must not get around the old neighborhood too much. this is great feel good food. the red hots & devil hots are excellent. the pasta and sausage are also good. Pizza is also good. Want ambience? Go to lodo. Want good neighborhood food? Here's the place!
It's Time Has Passed. It seemed like they just tried to cover a completely bland pizza with garlic in the Jiffy crust and spread on top. It was definitely an Italian "dive" without any of the pleasant aspects of such a place. One nice element was an old, colorful mural of Napoli on one wall in the dining room, but it certainly didn't fit in with the rest of the place, which just seemed tired.
Excellent Food and Fun.
This is a good place for any time of the day or night. Whether you're hitting the take out for lunch, catching up with buddies or a date after work, or looking to get dressed up for some local salsa dancing on a Friday night! Lechuga's has it all. It is situated in the heart of old North Denver minutes from LoDo. Owners Chuck and Rachel are well know folks in the neighborhood and bring in some of the friendliest folks around town.
Bravo Bravo !!
